Today is...

National Cookie Day, otherwise known as the Best. Day. Ever. 

News of the Day:

+ Amandla Stenberg is featured in Lauren Turk’s music video for "Love Leftover." At the end, the actress/activist gives Turk a flower, which we like to believe is a nod to Katniss Everdeen. We salute you, girl.

+ Halsey is being accussed of stealing a sweatshirt from a former friend from high school. Apparently, the singer hasn't returned the sweatshirt since she first borrowed it five years ago. Her ex-friend Allison Coopersmith is seeking support from the Twitter community by using #ReturnTheSweatshirtHalsey. (P.S., it's all a joke.) 

+ MTV is trying to define the post-millennial generation as "the Founders."

+ G.I. Joe, meet G.I. Jane—the Pentagon recently announced that all combat roles in the military are now open to women.   

+ LIZZO's new music video for "My Skin" sends a powerful message about body image positivity. It'll remind you to love the skin you're in.

Deal of the Day:

Drake is opening an OVO Flagship store in LA on December 5. If you're reading this, it's not too late. Watch him act corny in the moody promo video here
